Cornwall Tenders for June

Service 76 (Plymouth - Saltash - Callington - Launceston - Bude)


As a result of the retendering exercise by Cornwall Council, from Monday 2 June this service will only operate between Plymouth, Callington and Launceston. The section previously covered by the 76 between Launceston and Bude will be operated by Western Greyhound. Most service 76 journeys from Plymouth will continue to depart at their current times, with most journeys from Launceston and Callington running 10 minutes later.

Evening journeys from Plymouth will also cease to operate. Passengers who have purchased return or day tickets on our service will be able to make return journeys on Western Greyhound buses as these are supported by Cornwall Council.


Service 81 (Plymouth - Devonport - Torpoint - Antony - Cawsands - Cremyll)


As a result of the retendering exercise by Cornwall Council, from Monday 2 June service 81 will only operate between Plymouth, Devonport, Torpoint and HMS Raleigh from Monday to Saturday (except public holidays) The frequency will continue at mostly every 15 minutes, although there are some slight changes late evenings and early morning Saturday trips.

We will continue to operate through to Antony, Cawsands, Whitsands Holiday PArk and Cremyll on Sundays and public holidays, with a slightly revised timetable for the summer period.

New timetable leaflets for these routes will be available from our travel shops from the end of May. They will also be available to view and download on The First website (in the forthcoming timetables section within the Timetables section) from 17 May.

First new timetables out First have published their new timetable booklet taking effect from 1st June. It now includes route 26 from Hedge End to Fareham but bizarrely the 4/4A/X4 services have been removed from the Southampton booklet.

CHELTENHAM BUS RUNNING DAY We hope you will enjoy what we have in store for you which is designed to provide a number of Classic Buses from the 1950s/60s/70s, mostly with conductors, in service on our ordinary route network for the day in place of the modern buses normally in use.
Minor Kommotion in Milton Keynes [2] Now, might it be just conceivable that Meridian put in a tender for the route, did not get the award, so started the service commercially to spite the Council and rattle Redline? The technique has been known elsewhere!
